The tone of the article
:Hi Sarisburium, thanks for your work on this. Can you be more specific about which articles you're tlaking about? The articles from Frs. Hopko and Caldaroni ''are'' different, yes? — [[User:FrJohn|<b>FrJohn</b>]] ([ talk])
== The tone of the article ==
This is one of the articles on Orthodox Wiki that doesn't read like an encyclopedia article. The opening section has a rather "preachy" tone to it. Also, it includes the claim that "In either case, any practicing Orthodox Christian cannot at the same time be a practicing homosexual." Clearly this isn't a true statement; there are practicing homosexuals who are also practicing Orthodox Christians. The statement could give the false impression that the Orthodox Church doesn't include sinnners in its membership, or that the author thinks that practitioners of this particular sin do not or should not belong to the Orthododox Church. The statement also runs counter to the linked article by Fr Joseph Huneycutt, which refers to a gay man saying "It took the man a couple years to become Orthodox, but another 10 years to become celibate." The Church is a hospital for sinners, and we are rarely healed overnight. --[[User:Fr Lev|Fr Lev]] 11:26, August 22, 2006 (CDT)
